Bread Keeps Falling!

Recommended Posts

I am in need of some help... We have been gluten-free for about 6 weeks and I am having terrible luck with bread. Using a bread machine, I have tried a variety of bread mixes but they always fall and end up dense and "bricky". I purchased a second machine and same problem.

Pamela's seemed to do ok and it was yummy. So did Gluten Free Pantry, tho we didnt care for it.

Is this a yeast issue? Are the packets that come in the mix generally bad and need to be replaced?

Is it my machine? I currently have a Welbilt 3000, purchased at a thrift store. Works great, I think... I set it to normal/light. Put in liquid then dry then yeast in a well on top.

I also live at a high altitude - 5,500 ft

any insight is appreciated!! Thanks!

Oh me too. I've had HORRID luck.

I hope we get an answer. I've tried making two of the Bette Hagman breads and am on my second loaf today.

BLECH. I really want a grilled cheese.

My bread is not dense but it always falls or sinks in. I have been making bread in a machine since Christmas last year. There is still enough area to make sandwiches and such but it is always frustrating to see my sunken loaf!
